the united states, in fact, for something like this. i think thers going to be a lot of, you know, the u.s. is really going to hunker down and think about how they want to proceed now. not just in libya but in the whole region. >> elise, this is brooke. let me just, as john points out, you know, diplomats really are certainly mourning this morning and we're covering the ory, really there's no way any other network can. if we can just back up and if you can help us fill in the blanks as far as what exactly happened. here we are day two now of protests. we've been covering the protests in cairo and in benghazi. we remember covering the revolution, it was really the rebel stronghold last year. explain what exactly happened as far as this ambassador is concerned and the three other workers who were apparently with him in his car? >> details are very sketchy right now. what we understand is we knew yesterday, towards the end of the day, that as we were watching those pictures at the embassy in cairo, there were gunmen that had approached the u.s. consulate in benghazi, and breached the walls
dangerous country in the world. and the number one threat to the united states is iran acquiring a nuclear weapon. the suggestion by prime minister netanyahu that the united states should set a red line and say in advance that we would use force if iran achieved a certain level of progress in its nuclear effort doesn't make a lot of sense to me. this is a question of war and peace. and both president obama and president bush have tried to say we need to negotiate with iran and have the ability to sanction it and use force if necessary, but you don't want to put yourself into a corner and use force based on actio and a predetermined level as what the iranians do. so i think president obama is right here to resist that. and israel should know that the united states has its back as the president has said and the united states will do what it must do to stop iran. but let the united states make that decision, not some preimposed red line. i think that makes sense for america. >> president obama on " 6/0 minutes" on sunday said this. let's play a clip. >> and it comes to our national security d
the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> cnn foreign affairs reporter elise labott is with us. what can we expect from ahmadinejad today? will he tone it down or go out as fiery as he always does? >> i think he's going to double down, up the ante, and hear more of the same. previous years he's talked about american officials being responsible for 9/11, talking about that the holocaust never exists. i think he's very sidelined at home. not very strong right now. i think he'd like to use the world stage as a bullying pulpit, if you will, and then when he talks about this new world order, it has a lot of resonance in some of the countries that do feel like the united states and the western countries, the permanent members of the security council, call all the shots. so while he says a lot of things that are, rheric that's very fiery, at the same time, he does have an audience, he's not just speaking for himself. >> people have been asking to tone it down, ban ki-moon -- >> ban ki-moon, u.n. secretary-general said, listen, your last time, w
calling for calm. >> since our founding, the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. >> the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. we absolutely reject its content, and message. america's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. >> elsewhere, in iran, a senior cleric reportedly upped the bounty for the killing of author salman rushdie, whose book "the satanic verses" sparked global protests more than two decades ago, after the late imam khomeini declared it an insult to islam. >> yes, it was a stupid film, you know. and the correct response to a stupid film on youtube is to say, it's a stupid film on youtube and you get on with the rest of your life. so, to take that, and to deliberately use it to inflame your troops, you know, is a political act. that's not about religion. that's about power. >> we just returned back to the office from the streets of islama
sort of balance. >> well, when the president of the united states offered a $4 trillion cut to spending, republicans pushed it away. now the president did sign into law a $2 trillion cut, that's reality. doesn't get credit for it but the president did offer a grand bargain and republicans refused to accept it. >> so then we head into the conversations about jobs, sort of this number that you talk about but i think there's a measurement that is how people feel. you can talk about bottoming out and 4.5 million jobs and the number was much bigger, et cetera, if people don't feel job secure, that's a huge problem. >> you're absolutely right. if you didn't get one of those 4.5 million jobs, you can't be happy. the economy is growing and we've added jobs. that's a reality and there are some amazing things going on in the united states. things that we should be very proud of. one of which is the creation of 4.5 million jobs but many other things, support for education going up. now the republicans want to roll that back. they want to attack pel grants. we have to tell both sides of the story a
europe the president of the united states, you've been there for four years, they can't get through one sentence without mentioning george w. bush, that's not what president obama got elected to do. most people are disenfranchised. they look at the hope, the change, the bringing the kcounty together. we're not the red states, the blue states, we're the united states. where did that go? all of that has gone out the door. >> it went out the door with some republicans in congress. >> no, but that's not the way that it operated and i think the country recognizes it's off track. i think they do want to turn around. that's the whole premise of the romney/ryan presidency, the candidacy. and that's where i think mitt romney will be the next president of the united states. we do need a turnaround, somebody who knows about jobs and the economy, somebody who knows about business. that's why mitt romney will be the next president. >> the democrats are happy to have this comparison between do you want to go back to the clinton years or the bush years? what do republicans point to? what decade of gov
. this is an election for president of the united states -- >> right, no, and i would agree with you on that and that's not what i'm saying so i'll stop you there if i can. i agree with you on that. i'm not saying how you look, i guess you would say how you can command and navigate a debate is, might be equally as important to the specifics of what you're saying. which is not quite how you look. >> well, but it has to do with, look, when president obama was elected, he got elected on a blank slate, or see in me what you want to see in me. then what happened was, what he saw was tax increases and growth of government, joblessness remaining high for 43 months, are big concerns. that is what people want to think about. and quite frankly, i think that if all the media will talk about in these presidential debates is how someone looked and did they have their shoulders high, et cetera, that's a glamour contest. when i talk to families they want to know what does this mean for our kids? what does this mean for us and jobs? and that's going to be the big takeaway. the substance later on, not just how someon
of the united states and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. >> new jersey mayor cory booker is with us. some people said that was one of the best speeches he ever gave, certainly a long speech. i think he is known for that sometimes. it was a terrific speech. he really laid out sort of the accomplishments of the administration, i thought. >> with the exception of the two candidates themselves, in my opinion, because it cut through a lot of negativity you are hearing in the media about the campaign and the sound bites and it was almost like a lecture married a good baptist sermon. >> sort of like i thought like a white board, okay, let's go back to welfare reform. >> i was in the delegation and people were really taking note of how he was explaining some of these complicated topics that are so easy to demagoge and demonize and making them plain and simple and easily understood and gave it in a way that everybody could digest and come away with a deeper understanding of the truth. >> the $64,000 question is going to be does that sliver of people who are undec

growth. and not only economic growth. again, of making sure -- look, when someone says the united states cannot be trusted, how far have we collapsed? that's not me saying it. you can disagree, but i hate to tell you, i think he has a little bit of credibility. >>> still ahead this morning on "starting point," it was a star-studded convention. we'll tell you what mary j. blige had to say when we grabbed her for a quick one-on-one. that's still coming up. >>> today, scarlett johansson, kerry washington, and eva longoria all spoke at the democratic convention. yeah. this means that obama has all but clinched the 13-year-old boy vote. >>> welcome back. you're watching "starting point." celebrities have been out in force this week at the dnc. the actor zach braff tweeted a picture of himself and jon hamm on the convention floor. a picture of jared leto. he is so cute. female stars had speaking roles. scarlett johansson spoke. eva longoria. kerry washington, an important message for young americans, get out and vote. listen. >> you may not be thinking about politics. but politics is thinking
